For the crust:

  • 2 cups crushed graham crackers or cookie crumbs (such as vanilla wafers)
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted

For the filling:

  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups whipped topping (such as Cool Whip)

For the strawberry layer:

  • 3 cups fresh strawberries, hulled and sliced
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar


  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the crushed graham crackers or cookie crumbs with the melted butter. Mix until the crumbs are evenly coated.
  2. Press the crumb mixture into the bottom of a 9×13-inch baking dish to form the crust. Place the dish in the refrigerator to chill while preparing the filling.
  3. In another mixing bowl, beat the softened cream cheese until smooth and creamy.
  4. Add the powdered sugar and vanilla extract to the cream cheese, and continue beating until well combined.
  5. Fold in the whipped topping until the mixture is light and fluffy. Spread the cream cheese filling evenly over the chilled crust.
  6. In a separate bowl, combine the sliced strawberries and granulated sugar. Stir gently to coat the strawberries in the sugar. Let the strawberries sit for a few minutes to release their juices.
  7. Spread the strawberry mixture evenly over the cream cheese filling, ensuring the strawberries are distributed throughout.
  8. Refrigerate the dessert for at least 2 hours, or until set and chilled.
  9. Once chilled, slice the No Bake Strawberry Dessert into squares and serve.
